It would be hard to give an average gross, but my loads go about 50% close to max and 50% less than 60,000. And yes, when pulling hills I just hold the slowest speed as I get to the top and let the downhill excelerate me. I also use the engine brake a lot because when that is on all fuel is shut off, so I use that rather than the truck brakes as much as posible. I also idle very little, only 4 days last year for air conditioning and 2 days because it was below zero. In the summer I tend to drive later in the day so I stop after dark, that way it's cooler and I have a fan that I put in the vent which is usually good enough. For winter I have a heater that runs off the battery and pulls fuel from the tank so no idling unless I'm worried the truck won't start in the morning.
